Get something other than the x800 pro, maybe an x800xl or a 6800gt

The majority of your system seems good to me (although the other guys could help you more with that), but I would like to warn you that the PCI-E version of the x800 Pro does not unlock to 16 pipes. Only the AGP version does. Since you are already not planning to build until July, I would wait as ATi and Nvidia's new chips are coming out in May/June.

O and Welcome to the Forums! :D

That card is ok, however I would get the x800 for $232 because it has extra ram (256mb) and 12 pipelines compared to the 6600GTs 128mb of ram and 8 pipelines. You probably could overclock the x800 as well.

x800 for $232 Link

I think it would be better to have the 6600gt because of higher clockspeeds and also i really dont like the x800 its either the pro xl xt but i wont get them because i dont feel like spending the money for those :x i would the pro but it doesnt unlock ><

GPU performance is related to clockspeed and pipelines, so a 500Mhz part with 8 pipes will offer a fill rate of roughly 4000 megapixel per second while a 12 piped card at 400Mhz will offer a fillrate of 4800 megapixel per second, so the second card, without taking into account architectural differences, offers higher performance than first one.

The key here is parallelism so a 4000 Mhz GPU with a single pipe will offer roughly the same performance of a 1 MHz GPU with 4000 pipelines....

Looks good. My only gripe would be you picked an ugly ass case. If you want the NF4 then you have no choice (for the moment). But personally I would go for the ST20G5 or SN95G5

Well, if you don't want to spend over 300 dlls, you can get the x800 xl for just that, if you cant find it at etailers, compusa used to have it for it msrp.
